Blurb: He’s trouble she doesn’t need . . .
Thanks to a cheating fiancé, Josephina Harrington’s perfect life just crashed and burned. Moving in with her overbearing parents is definitely not an option. No, she needs to prove she can make it on her own. And she will-by turning her great-aunt’s old plantation house into a destination getaway. She’s just not expecting her contractor to be so hands-on-and so totally irresistible.
. . . but everything she wants
Bad-boy golf champion Brett McGraw figured his hometown of Sugar, Georgia was the perfect place to lay low and get his life back up to par. The leggy blonde with a pint-sized pup is the kind of sweet ‘n sassy trouble he never saw coming. She doesn’t know a nut from a bolt and before long, he’s renovating her house . . . as she steals his heart. Can he convince Josephina that his womanizing ways are in the past and he’s ready for forever?
Review: This was a cute, fun, lighthearted read. The main characters were both pretty fun and believable and the chemistry between them definitely worked. I liked the work up in how they managed to get together while still managing to keep things interesting.
I wasn’t a fan of the Old Lady Brigade. Instead of them coming across as just ornery old biddies stirring up trouble, they really came across more of just down right nasty and mean. The things they did weren’t funny little pranks, but really kind of hateful. It was hard to believe that they were just doing that because they cared for Josephina’s Aunt and her memory. That part of the story just didn’t quite work for me. I’d like to say that it was easy enough to overlook as not being essential to the plot, but their behavior and attitudes were essential and knocked this down a notch for me.
The ending is pretty much predicable in standard romance novel fashion, but still fits into the overall feel of the book of keeping it on the lighter side of things. Definitely a good one for when that is the mood you are looking for.
